About the property

Destination Rental at the (former) Elkin & Allegheny Railroad Office

The (former) Elkin & Alleghany Railroad Office has been designated as an "Certified Historic Structure and Rehabilitation" by the US Dept. of the Interior. The Town of Elkin Main Street Advisory Board has nominated the railroad office for the 2017 NC Main Street Award for "Best Historic Rehabilitation Project".

Located on the west end of Main Street, we sit at the crossroads of the OverMountain Victory National Historic Trail, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, and the Elkin and Allegheny Rail Trail. We are centrally located in the Yadkin Valley Wine Region with more than 40 tasting rooms to explore.

Convenient to local downtown restaurants and entertainment. The Elkin Municipal Park is a short walk away. Enjoy the view and peaceful sounds from the Big Elkin Creek Waterfall.

After 19 months of planning and rehabilitation work, the railroad office was opened as a destination rental in December 2016. The 523 sq. ft space offers a parlor, kitchenette, bedroom, and full bath. The parlor includes a pullman sleeper sofa, chairs, drop table, and Smart TV. The kitchenette has wormy chestnut cabinets with granite countertops, a refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, dinnerware, and cutlery. The bedroom offers a queen size bed and sitting area. The bathroom includes a shower with shower bar and jets, heated overhead fan, and dresser vanity. The backdoor leads to a outdoor patio with a fenced in yard. The outdoor area is nicely landscaped with a offset umbrella and patio table.

Perfect Place to Stay in Elkin

  • 5 of 5

We visited Maggy's Place in Elkin for the first time this weekend and had a wonderful stay. The house is in a great location for walking to restaurants downtown and for visiting local wineries. It was obvious that the owners put a lot of thought into restoring the home and equipping it with everything needed. We loved sitting outside on the patio every morning and evening enjoying coffee or a glass of wine. We hope to return for many more weekends at Maggy's Place. Thanks Mark & Deborah!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Maggy's Place. I agree... we have enjoyed the patio late night and early morning with the sounds of the waterfall from Big Elkin Creek. We look forward to hosting your return visit soon.. thank you.

Beautiful restoration in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Maggie's Place was the perfect vacation rental for my weekend in Elkin. The cottage is so charming and has been exquisitely restored. Everything was comfortable, clean, and so organized. The location was wonderfully convenient so we could walk down Main Street, explore local trails and shops, and easily drive to surrounding areas. I would absolutely stay here again. Kudos to the Imbuses for preserving this wonderful North Carolina treasure.

Wonderful old building now a rental getaway

  • 5 of 5

The owners did a great job in restoring this old railroad office into a nice, cozy getaway. The location is perfect for exploring Elkin and the surrounding areas. We were within an easy drive of several local wineries as well. The area was nice and quiet the weekend we were there. Overall, this was a great place to have a relaxing weekend.

Beautiful place, Cozy stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were able to take refuge from hurricane Irma in this beautifully restored cottage. We had such a great time in the house as it was the perfect place for us to enjoy some much needed peace and relaxation. Being in historic downtown Elkin made our trips for coffee, chocolate, and dinner easy. On the days we didn't dine out, we were able to make use of the nicely equipped kitchen. The patio outside was wonderful as well, we had our coffee and tea at the table and watched the sunset color the clouds as we got ready for the night. We both greatly admired the detail in the restoration and decoration of the cottage. Everything was clean and comfortable, and actually made the evacuation more of a vacation than a headache. The owners were very kind and quick to answer any questions we had about the cottage. I highly recommend this stay to anyone who might be passing through, or staying in the area to explore the vineyards.
